I knew it was too good to be true when I was at the end of my pregnancy, December 2013, and I realized none of us had been severely ill yet. We always have some sickness take us down in the winter. If you looked at our church attendance, it would show that from about November through April, we make it about 50% of the time because one of us is always sick.
Welllll after having the baby, we had that stomach virus pass through. Then we all got some coughing thing that seems to have gone around and around and around again, and we still haven't gotten over it. Which leads me to the funny exchange R and I had yesterday.
R- I feel like we should put the humidifier in the living room, and all of us gather around it.
A- We can sing kumbaya and bang on drums.
R- It will be like we're going on some spirit quest.
A- We can pass around the nebulizer like it's opium. "here, take a hit, tell me what you see!"
R- Then we can all go on a vision quest through CVS.
A- What flavor is your spirit lozenge?! What flavor?! You cannot emerge from the pharmacy vision quest until you know! Is it mentholated?!?
At that point we decided we were delirious from weeks on end of very little sleep, and collapsed into bed laughing. At 9pm. It was totally worth it.
So... what flavor is your spirit lozenge? I should make one of those "what your spirit lozenge says about you" kind of quiz thingies.
